La Paz, Mexico
The beautiful Paraiso del Mar Resort Development sits on the El Mogote peninsula just across the bay from the Malecon (waterfront boardwalk) in La Paz. This first class development is centered around La Paz's first golf course--designed by Arthur Hills and already becoming known as one of the best in the Baja. The course was voted one of the Top New International Courses in 2009 by Golf Digest!
There are endless activities at Paraiso del Mar. World class golf, tennis, swimming in the Sea of Cortez, kayaking, playing on the beach, sand volleyball, or just hanging out by the pool. La Paz is well known for it's sport fishing water activities. Just offshore of Paraiso del Mar is the uninhabited protected island sanctuary known as Isla Espiritu Santo. This magical island is well known for its many secluded coves, snorkeling with the tropical fish, kayaking, scuba diving, swimming, hiking, or just relaxing on one of the white sandy beaches.
Eco-tourism is by far the major source of tourism income in La Paz as people come to enjoy its marine wonders, as well as its diverse and often unique terrestrial species endemic to the region. There are some 900 islands and inlets in the Gulf of California with 244 now under UNESCO protection as World Heritage Bio-Reserves and the Isla Espíritu Santo group, which borders the south eastern portion of the Bay of La Paz and are considered the crown jewels of the islands of the Gulf (also referred to as the Sea of Cortez/Mar de Cortes), the primary tourist destination of the area. Its diving, snorkeling, and kayaking are considered second to none.
The 50 meter infinity pool is a perfect place to relax and spend the day. There is a swim up bar, a shallow kids pool, and a beach volleyball court as well!

Well appointed, as described. A wonderful place.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the penthouse. The owners could not have been more gracious or attentive. The apartment is even better than described, with great light, soft towels and good beds. We will look forward to coming back.”
Undiscovered and fabulous
I really hate to gush, because I want la Paz to stay as it is, but to be fair to Kim and Dale they home is the best 3 Ed home we have stayed at. They own the unit next door also and were there the same time we were. They are lovely people with great taste and fun. Their penthouse was spot on. Good bed, sheets and pillows, a/c grand views and a delightful homeownership in the complex that made us feel welcome.we are planning on going back!”
Unique place to enjoy with the family
We had an amazing time during our stay at Cortez Penthouse. La Paz has a lot to offer for travelers seeking beautiful beaches and marine wildlife. The apartament is very ample and very well appointed, with a beautiful view of the ocean. The attention from the property manager is very good, she made sure we had everything we needed. The property is located in a very private beach. Gave it four stars because the development is stalled and the services are limited. Anything you need to get or any place you need to get to, requires taking a water taxi that leaves every 30 minutes so you need to plan well.”
